Doctors say a man in China hacked off his own finger after he was bitten by a snake that he believed was highly venomous. The man, identified as a 60 year old named Zhang, reportedly claimed he was bitten on his index finger by a Deinagkistrodon acutus while working in the mountains. The poor guy thought death could be instant, so he cut his finger off with his knife. When he arrived at the hospital [without finger] he was told by doctors the digit removal was not necessary. Oops.
